Star Wars VII:”A World Awakens”

We are dropped on the desert planet of Jakku thirty years after the defeat of the Galactic Empire, the galaxy faces a new threat from the evil Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and the First Order.
When a defector named Finn crash-lands on a desert planet, he meets Rey (Daisy Ridley), a tough scavenger whose droid contains a secret vital to the resistance.
Together, the young duo joins forces with Han Solo (Harrison Ford) to make sure the Resistance receives the intelligence concerning Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), the last of the Jedi Knights.

As previously stated, this is a NON-SPOILER review.

 

Review

“The Chairman” – Ever since the announcement that Disney purchased the rights to Star Wars I have been nervous with excitement and this faith was due to the company’s handling of the Marvel properties.

Was I misguided? Would it be terrible? Worse than the prequels? I can saying with certainty that it is everything we have been waiting for and more in the same vain as episodes 4-6. You will be smacked in the face with the nostalgia pimp hand of JJ Abrams.

Get ready to fall in love with space and the battle of DARK and LIGHT for the galaxy. It’s not a perfect movie, but it’s the movie we needed. Worth every penny and more than one viewing. 8.5/10

“The Nomad Shad” – It’s brilliant! A thrilling return to the space opera of old. The force is strong with this one as the torch is passed onto a new generation of characters, directors, and fans alike.

It taps into the rich mythology of the force and asks excellent questions for the upcoming sequels.

The film taps into a lot of George Lucas’, now defunct, extended universe to create a new rich universe full of possibilities. I loved and I’m sure as fuck excited for the sequels. Take a bow JJ. Rating: 12 parasecs

Let us have your thoughts on the movie, please no spoilers.

  1. I think you guys still have your nostalgia goggles on. I mean, sure it wasn’t a bad movie.

    The cinematography was beautiful, the acting was much better (although that wasn’t a tough one to beat), the character were good. All in all it was much better than the prequels.

    BUT, really JJ? How many shots can you reuse in one movie??? It was basically watching a remake of episode 4/5 with some 6 thrown in for good measure. I also think that Kylo Ren was a mis-cast. He gave a fairly wooden performance and looked nothing like his parents- not a believable battle of good and evil going on inside there, there was no emotion.

    Also, some serious holes in the plot that I won’t mention here because #spoilers.

    So yes, I suppose it was the STAR WARS that we needed, BUT was it is the STAR WARS that we deserved???

    • The Chairman – I think it was. Remember the bar was pretty low for JJ. Due to episodes 1-3.

      The beats are pretty much there with episode 4, I doubt Kylo Ren will have a redemption story quite like Darth Vader.

      We have to agree to disagree on the casting of Adam Driver. The movie was about action and not political discord, a space opera with a great sense of humour. I think it achieved this goal.
